Original name of The Beatles?
the silver beatles
The FIVE original Beatles were John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Stu Sutcliffe and Pete Best (there was an assortment of other members under the band's previous name and formation). Stu left the band after he got engaged to German photographer and friend of The Beatles, Astrid Kirchherr. In 1962 they kicked Pete out and replaced him with Ringo Starr. And from that day forward, the four Beatles were John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison…
The name "The Beatles" comes from the Marlon Brando movie "The Wild One". The name of Brando's gang was "The Beetles," causing the lads to change their names from "The Quarrymen" to the "Silver Beatles", and finally "The Beatles". John Lennon liked the name because it was the name of an insect, and it had 'beat' in it. More information can be found on http://abbeyrd.best.vwh.net/named.htm
